ANFA will receive more than 6 crore from FIFA

FIFA is releasing around 150 million US dollars (£121million) to its national associations whose finances have been badly affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The game’s world governing body said each of its 211 member countries would receive 500,000 US dollars in the coming days plus any entitlement under the Forward 2.0 development programme.

“The pandemic has caused unprecedented challenges for the entire football community and, as the world governing body, it is FIFA’s duty to be there and support the ones that are facing acute needs,” said FIFA President Gianni Infantino.

FIFA said the money represented operational funding for 2019 and 2020. Under normal circumstances, the associations would only receive full funding upon fulfilment of specific criteria such as the organisation of a set number of men’s, women’s and youth competitions, but was providing it to protect its members.
